secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over two years. officials say some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies an improper relationship. the fbi discovered the e-mails during its investigation of kelley's e-mails, sparked by her complaints about anonymous threats which turned out to be from paula broadwell. they say they found no wrongdoing by general allen but turned the files over to the pentagon which monday ordered its inspector general to investigate. a social link between the two four-star generals, jill kelley who enjoyed socializing with the powerful in tampa while doing volunteer work for military families. she also gave people the impression she had some kind of state department status which officials say she does not. in fact, last weekend, she called police complaining about media
fbi investigation which revealed the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. the newest twist, nbc confirming that broadwell e-mailed general allen first from the handle kelley patrol warning him about jill kelley painting her negatively. "the wall street journal" reporting that she tried to stop the fbi investigation that she started. this is news that nbc has not yet confirmed, however, we have been able to confirm that kelley called police over the weekend claiming to be an honorary consul-general and citing diplomatic protection in an effort to get the media including nbc off of her property. >> i'm an honorary consul-general so i have inviolability so i should -- they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved, as well. >> video taken by nbc shows diplomatic plates on her car. south korean authorities say she is an honorary consul and the state department says it has no connection to kelley. >> i can assure you that she does not work for the state department and has no formal affiliat
that an ethically sketchy, politically motivated fbi agent could spark an incendiary federal investigation tunnelling into private lives to help a woman he liked and later blow it up to hurt a president he didn't like. it's also worrisome that the nation's spymaster who had presided in the military where adultery could result in court-martial could not have found a more clandestine manner of talking naughty to his biograph biographer, baby, than a gmail drop box used by terrorists, teenagers and authors. the scandal is a good reminder that although mccain and palin earned total trust, these guys are human beings working under extremely stressful circumstances, and their judgments are not beyond reproach. one of the elements of the story that hasn't been referred to greatly in all of the coverage because of the obvious, that's atop the coverage, is the repeated assignments to iraq and afghanistan. not only among the brass but obviously the deployments, among the troops, seven, eight, nine deployments. it takes -- exacts a crushing burden on families. >> i mean, in the heart of this whole st
a brighter spotlight into david patraeus. overnight fbi agents saefrped the home of the alleged mistress with lingering questions about whether she had access to sensitive information. defense secretary penetta says patraeus needed to step down. >> i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all of the challenges that face you in that position that personal integrity comes first and for most. >> and as far as general allen is concerned, senior u.s. official says he h done nothing wrong but the investigation continues and they are going through 20 to 30,000 documents just in this case. >> thank you, doug. congress returns to work today. no doubt at the top of the agenda is avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff. they have until december 31st to reach a compromise or tax increases and spending cuts will kick in. president obama and vice president biden will find a balanced approach to reduce the federal deficit. >>> and now to a news alert out of the district. former dc council chair qualmie brown will be sentenced on bank charges. >> also ca
had an affair. this begins with another scandal which is the fbi investigating a lover's quarrel, which i think is an abuse of taxpayers' dollars. >> you think he should not have resigned. >> no, i don't think he should have. >> and you're saying -- i think it became public once he resigned. i think president obama should have said you made a big mig stake, make amends to your wife and you're going back to work. they should have said this is a private matter involving a mistrust by petraeus and he's dealt with it. >> you'd have that view with any former four-star you hadn't dealt with? >> i'd have that view with anybody who's given great service to the country. i just don't understand the frenzy of going after this guy. there is no allegation of crime. it's even worse with john allen, this marine general, who sends a bench of e-mails to a woman and he's suddenly involved in scandal. news flash, david petraeus is a human being, number two, a general is sending e-mails to a woman. a scandal is john allen, a fine general, being dragged into this mess and people thinking it's part of
't know. that was the very week she was interviewed by the f.b.i., by the way, which was pretty astonishing. >> pretty remarkable knowing that she would still talk to the public. this is a woman who didn't lack confidence. if there are potential problems, is it a paula broadwell problem or a david petraeus problem? >> it depends onhat she had, obviously. is it fshe had something from david petraeus. i was struck by the president calling it a personal matter and talking about hills time as a general. we talked about david petraeu pelast night and his incredible service over so many deployments and how hard that is. the fact is, he was c.i.a. director. he wasn't a general in the army any more. he was c.i.a. director. and most people i've talked to think that is a very, very different situation. >> julianna let's go back to oba fair moment. you've been watching him going on close to five years-- over four years. he's pretty confident, isn't he? he feels good, as he should, i suppose, this is a more comfort, assertive obama than we saw six months ago. >> i thought it was noteworthy
's entire search history it will be more willing to ask the fbi for that help. shep. >> shepard: you know, it's clear whether the sheriff's department wants to talk about it or not, it's clear that this sort of evidence could shake up the whole thing. >> it certainly could have. whether it would have undone the not guilty verdict remains to be seen. it would have been more of the same evidence. what i mean by that is there were several home searches on the anthony computer entered as evidence during the trial. every time priewrgts blamed it prosecutors blamed it on casey anthony while the defense team blamed it on george anthony the father. today jose baez thinks buried this suffocation search from the start. >> that evidence cuts both ways. big time. and i think it cuts the prosecution a lot more and i think it's preposterous that law enforcement is saying it was an oversight. we just overlooked it. >> based on george anthony's testimony, prosecutors always contended that casey anthony took a live caylee from the home that day at 12:50 p.m. while the internet searches for fool proof suff
with the president. >> my question is for leader cantor. i wanted to ask you about the f.b.i. tipster that came forward to you about general petraeus, what did he tell you and do you have any questions about his credibility given he sent a shirtless picture? >> all i'm going to say, i received information from an individual that i had not met before and did not know the information that was sent to me sounded as if there was a potential for a national security vulnerability. i had no way of corroborating the story that i was told and felt the best thing to do at the time was not to politicize it but to put national security first and that's why i turned to director mueller's office to ask them to do their job and assume that the f.b.i. would comply with its obligations to keep us on the hill informed once it was determined whether an investigation was necessary or a crime had been committed. >> just a comment -- [inaudible] >> senator mccain wants a wear gate sort of probe into this matter, would you get behind these types of -- >> i think the standing committees of the house, the oversight com
